WHILE WALKING OUR DOGS ALONG THE OCEAN ON THE EAST SIDE OF VANCOUVER ISLAND, NORTON CAME ACROSS A PIECE OF DRIFTWOOD UPON THE SHORE THAT SQUAWKED TO HIM ''TAKE ME HOME.''  WELL, EASIER SAID THAN DONE.  BUT NORTON, STUBBORN AS USUAL, DRAGGED IT TO HIS TRUSTY TAURUS STATION WAGON AND BROUGHT HER HOME WEIGHING IN AT AROUND 75LBS SOAKING WET.  ''I WAS TAKEN BACK BY THE NATURAL FORM.  IT WAS PERFECT.  I DIDN’T ALTER ANY PART... JUST PAINTED HER AND 'SHEILA JEAN' WAS CREATED IN HONOUR OF BOTH CATHY'S AND MY MOTHER WHO HAVE SINCE PASSED AWAY".

THIS WAS 2010, 5 YEARS BEFORE CATH AND I CREATED THE VANCOUVER ISLAND PARROT HEADS.  AT OUR FIRST FLOCKING IN 2015 OUR ORIGiNAL 10 MEMBERS SIGNED HER FEATHERS AND SHE HAS TRAVELLED TO ALL OF OUR MAJOR EVENTS. IN OCTOBER 2017 SHE WILL TRAVEL TO VANCOUVER TO SEE JIMMY AND HOPEFULLY GET SIGNED BY HIM AND THE BAND.
